, and republican strategist, ron bon john. some say the fact that we're not hearing much of washington is a good sign, and in this case, silence is golden. you guys agree? >> yeah, i definitely do. look, one of the things that we've got to realize here is that the more that this fight takes place in public, the less is being done behind closed doors, because everyone feels that they have to justify the public rhetoric. so i think that we have two silences going on. there's barack obama and john boehner working things out and the republicans realizing that they've got to find a way to negotiate. so silence is golden for christmas season. >> do you agree, ron bonjean? >> yes, i completely agree. i think that silence is best. and right now while they're figuring out how to put a deal together, i think the president softening his rhetoric in michigan on the issue yesterday was extremely helpful. you know, what we are still far apart, as far as we know, on entitlement reform, spending cuts, raising the rates, you know, we've been talking so much about raising taxes that we're not talking a lot about

not with radioshack, some point out other. jc penney, you know so well, covered it on cnbc, ron johnson and great magical vision for this company. so far, it has failed. again, it is make or break for mr. johnson. >> even with some optimistic analysts there who see signs of success this that have nothing to do with the original plan. >> a chart in our story, carl that shows the dropoff of jc penney stock -- i'm sorry, jc penney sales. they have lost 30 to 40% of their entire sales. that is very hard to do. >> take a look at some of the japanese exporters, talking about that in the cop text of going short the end, going long japanese stocks. an area to watch. overnight, expecting out of japan cpi data, expected to further the case for bank of japan to embark on more stimulus, bad news equals good news for japan what traders are bracing for overnight i at least on the japan trade. in terms of retailers, sears holdings is up a percent in today's session, the other three are doing pretty poorly. pretty poorly in today's session. it does look like we are extending our three-day losing streak we saw ac
of the attempt to turn the company around by ron johnson, the guy who created the apple store, and best buy because its founder seems hellbent on taking the company private. penney was on the ropes until recently when we learned from manny tirico, right here, the terrific ceo of pvh, phillips venue and izod, you know all those great brands, tommy, calvin klein, that penney's has started to order a ton of merchandise from pvh for its store within a store. in fact, his comments marked the bottom in the stock. as i pointed out at the time, i shopped jcpenney on tuesday and it was actually quite nice. i had lost this really good hat. if anyone knows my hat, please give it back to me. i went to buy it and they were all out of them. at $21 jcpenney can go higher even without additional news. best buy, i think the fundamentals here are on the decline. it feels terminal to me. so it seems a little ridiculous to own the stock. just as i think it's a little ridiculous that schultz, the founder, can get the financing to make the takeover that he so desperately seems to want to do. let me close by sayi
was coming in. a few cars were coming in and i told my driver, ron, stop. let's ask the this guy how to get down to mississippi. he put the map out on the hood any of the flashlight. yes sir go down to this lighting get to this dateline and take highway 78 and you are going to get it. i get back in the jeep and one of those things hits you. i gave him a name of gerald. i did not know his name. i hope he reads this book or his grandchildren read the book and let him know. i went back to him and they said, gerald, look, we are just a bunch of yankee's from the north. i know you were navy and i'm army that you have got to help us out. yes, sir. i will show you again. no, don't show me. gerald, you you're coming with us. his eyes popped out and he said sir, i can do that. i will be awol. besides you are army and i maybe. gerald, the voice of my brother, just make a decision, get him t -- get into the jeep under orders of president kennedy. my driver was bigger than gerald and he was nudged into the back of my jeep. we raced back to the base and 140 vehicles ready to grab the gate and i had mixe
with j.c. penney's ron johnson. his sin, way too optimistic in offering up guidance on what supposedly is a turnaround. the result of a promising and underdelivering. the reason he's not winner of this list is because you have to give him a chance to see if he can actually pull penney out of the hole. next is really a tough one, one i really anguished over and thought this guy might be number one and that is steve ballmer of microsoft. after years of missteps and playing follow the leader and the windows part of business, which is really only 25% of revenue, windows 8 was the trigger. it just simply hasn't knocked the cover off the ball, and that's after years, as i say, of missteps in this side of the business. in the end, however, the worst ceo easily is groupon's andrew mason. this has been nothing short of a disaster. and from a ceo standpoint i would suspect many would look at him and say a joke, an expensive joke for those who bought in early on the stock, and as i've previously said, this now appears to be a public company in search of a real business or maybe someone to execute
representative ron paul of texas distanced himself on monday from the nra proposal to put more armed guards in our nation's schools and paul said on his website it's another kind of violence. how do you think this conversation can be had logically in the new year if that's the only option that the nra wants to put on the table as a meaningful solution? >> well, i think that tragedy we just heard about in new york is further evidence of the fact that criminals and mad men do pay attention to the gun laws. that man was not supposed to have access to guns yet he did. in response to your conversation you had with my friend jack kingston, we should not be complacent to go to schools to be assassinated ed but the fac we need to protect our children and guns in schools should be decided at the local level but the mad men and criminals, no amount of gun control and restricting access and tightening the gun laws will stop a criminal from doing what he intends to do but putting an armed guard in the school, local schools feel that's the thing to do, we need to protect our children and one way to do
number one. ron johnson of jcpenney. this is a company that had a tremendous number of blunders right out of the gate with just overall optimistic sales and earnings guides. i have no idea why anyone in a turnaround company would have sales or earnings guides. last quarter 26% decline in comp store sales, really had people wondering if this could ever be turned around. the one defense i must mention. i must mention this to you, tyler. this is a company that's in a turnaround. when a company is in a turnaround, i think you must give the ceo a chance. in this case, he came out and he said from the start, it's going to take two or three years or a number of years. >> he's only been there 13 months. herb, i know you're a tough trader. he seems like such a nice man. >> he seems like a really nice man. he's engaging. nice and execution are two separate things. he is really trying to recreate a major retailer. no one has really done it quite like that. will he be able to do it? he could end up as a best ceo down the road. >> nothing would please you more. >> nothing would, i really respect great

representative ron kirk is also on the mentioned list in terms of retiring. host: but none of those formally? guest: not official . host: has anybody said i'm sticking around? guest: that would be kind of unproforma but i think kathleen seebluss said she would like to stay because of the implementation of the health care law. no one announces that. they kind of get the word out there. there have been some talk about whether eric holder will retire but he told people he would like to stay for a year or certainly until september when we're likely to get a new f.b.i. director. host: if you're not leaving immediately at the end of the first term are you expected to stay for all four years of the second term or is there another dated where turnover occurs? guest: the way i understand it is if president obama has told people if they do stay he wants them to stay for at least a year because he doesn't want to spend all of his time filling these jobs. so the rule of thumb is if people are still in place at the end of january they'll probably stay for the entire year. host: we're taking your calls an
